Duck Entertainers!

We stopped at this CL on our way home as our plans to stay in Derbyshire had to be changed. This is a 'down to earth' CL,nothing fancy BUT has everything for a very quiet pleasant stay. The pitches are sited so that the best view over the fishing lake is available and the lake is used often by keen fishermen and ofcourse the entertaining daily visit of ducks!! Yes, the site is basic and has no manicured lawns..it's a field and as such,the grass underfoot is a bit long but not a problem to us. The site is next to a "horse & carriage " business & although there was little activity during our few days stay & the horses were very quiet, we were made aware of such, by the large pile of horse manure near our pitch..giving off it's pungent smell. Again,this didn't bother us but might be a problem for some people not expecting such an aroma! It is a quiet farm field CL … and that's the attraction, plus, the local pub is about 150yds. from the site & offers a varied food menu,which we felt was a bit expensive but still worth a visit. The name of the pub is now "THE UGLY DUCKLING", recently refurbished.The young team of staff were really friendly.In our opinion,the pub is set up more as a restaurant and prices seem to support this. However, it appears to be very popular and booking might be required on a weekend. A "Toby Carvery" is a short drive from the site towards Wellington. We felt very relaxed and comfortable for our few days on this CL. Mr Holder informed us where we could find water & chemical waste area. There is a 'map' on the gate identifying the chemical waste point, situated within the farm buildings.The water point is hidden from view from most pitches by overgrown hedging. It is fixed to a wall building which helps to mark the boundry of the field,near the narrow end of the lake. Any shopping requirements, we found Wellington to have all that we needed & was quite an interesting small town in it's self. We would be happy to use this CL again if our plans to visit Shropshire included this area, & would recommend "Quassu Lakeside." as a base.
